Professional football stars from the 1980s and 1990s conducted training clinics for students ahead of the Philips Lighting International Soccer 7s last week.

'We did some fun training drills with them and hopefully some of the tips will stick,' said ex-West Ham star Bobby Barnes.

St Joseph's College, West Island School, Aberdeen Technical School and Chong Gene Hang College sent their boys to the sessions.

'They gave us lots of encouragement,' said Sebastian Lorenzi, 15. 'They gave us some good tips,' said Alex Raper, 14.
